Description

Glide through enchanting canals just like Venetians of yesteryear with a serene ride in a traditional gondola. As a master gondolier leads you down the Grand Canal and into smaller waterways, soak up the sights of the distinct Gothic buildings and arching bridges that make the city so magical.

Make your way to Campo San Luca, where a gondolier in classic Venetian garb ushers you to a nearby canal to step into a flat-bottomed gondola. Soon, you're floating gracefully out into the expansive Grand Canal, flanked by beautiful arched buildings built in the Venetian Gothic style. Observe the bustle of boat traffic that still makes use of the canal today, and pass beneath the Rialto Bridge for a spectacular perspective on its stone grandeur.

Your peaceful journey also leads you into some of the minor waterways around St. Mark's Square, in which more entrancing sights of Venice await. Peer down alleyways at charming residences and shops, glide past moored private boats, and navigate under small bridges spanning the narrow walkways. As your picturesque ride draws to an end, your gondolier brings you to a convenient drop-off point to continue exploring the city on your own.

Just to say I am or visited Venice, other than that nothing really empress me about Venice, the water where gondola drive you around stinks like crazy. Smells rotten egg and over price place.

When I first read the mixed reviews for this, I was concerned. We went on a shared Gondola ride yesterday and it was lovely and relaxed. The check-in desk was helpful and swapped our voucher for the passes. One lady guided the group to the on-board point which was a short walk from the tour office right by the Hotel Cavalletto and the Hugo Boss store. We shared the ride with 4 other European tourists and it was early so the Grand Canal was not too crowded. Our Gondolier was pleasant and not overly chatty but that was great. Everyone enjoyed the peacefulness and stillness of the water and the half hour went by quickly. Overall, no regrets and it was a great time!
